Nancy's Notes - April 3, 2014

Wright County Conservation has an annual poster contest, NYPD Red 2 by James Patterson, Blossom Street Brides by Debbie Macomber

    Wright County Conservation has an annual poster contest. This year the theme is, “Dig Deeper-Mysteries in the Soil”. The library has been approached to help host a workshop to make the posters. We invite K-2 students to come to the library after school on April 10 for a snack, a short presentation and time to make a poster. They will be dismissed around 4:30 p.m. Students 3-6 are invited to do the same on April 17.    

New to our Large Print Collection are the following: NYPD Red 2, Blossome Street Brides, and Blackberry Pie Murders.  If you haven’t been in to look at our large print collection you may want to do so. We have several hundred from which to choose.    

James Patterson is back with NYPD Red 2, which is available in both regular and large print. NYPD Red is an elite task force called in to solve only the most high-profile crimes. Their best man is Detective Zach Jordan. Being a professional he puts his feelings for partner Kylie Macdonald aside. The two are unprepared for what they see when they’re called to a crime scene in the heart of Central Park. They arrive at a carousel spinning round with one lone rider, a brutally slaughtered woman, tied to one of the horses. The victim is the fourth in a string of murders that have hit the city.    

Debbie Macomber’s, Blossom Street Brides, tells the tale of three women whose lives intersect in unexpected ways. The first, Lauren Elliott has waited years for her long-term boyfriend to propose. However he seems more focused on his career than their relationship. The second, Bethanne Scranton is newly married to her second husband. Their relationship is strained by their long-distance marriage. The final, Lydia Goetz, is happy with her husband but worried about the future of her yarn store. As she considers how to bring in business, she discovers that someone has beaten her to the punch.
